Governor McCrory Releases Statement on HB 695
Raleigh, NC– Unless significant changes and clarifications are made addressing our concerns that were clearly communicated by DHHS Secretary Aldona Wos, Governor Pat McCrory will veto the existing bill, HB 695, if it is passed by the House and Senate.
The Governor would like to thank those members of the legislature who have been working with the administration to ensure that the bill’s goals and objectives are clearly to protect the health and the safety of women. The governor believes that major portions of the bill are of sound principal and value.
The Governor also noted that there is much unfinished business in the legislature and again stressed the importance of passing legislation that will work to grow the North Carolina economy.
